Gov. Snyder says Flint's worst pipes a priority

Gov. Rick Snyder will hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon to highlight steps to replace high-priority pipes that feed the city of Flint's water supply.

On Tuesday, Snyder said Rowe Professional Services was hired to identify old, risky water lines that need immediate attention in Flint where the water is contaminated with lead. Separately, the governor told reporters that he wants to focus on the worst pipes and replace others over time.

He was responding Tuesday to threats of a protest by national civil rights activists if a plan to fix Flint's infrastructure isn't released in 30 days.

Snyder will be joined on Wednesday by Department of Environmental Quality Interim Director Keith Creagh and Rowe Professional Services CEO Leanne Panduren.
